Inspiration for painting 15mm North Koreans
I am almost finished painting my small North Korean force of one Ch'onma-ho tank and one VTT-323 APC (early version) with 12 man infantry squad in it (Only 11 soldiers will dismount, because one rifleman operates APC machine gun). I will share photos as soon as I finish painting them, but you already saw my infantry in "USE ME Modern Warfare Advanced" AAR.
Here are some inspirational videos of North Korean Military Parade 2012. You can see Vehicles from 6:00 starting from staff cars and Ural Trucks. Note that they have missiles at these Urals.
9:41 some interesting tracked vehicles with rockets. Does anyone know their name? Is it SA-13 Gopher?
9:44 different rocket artillery types.
12:30 different types of M-2010 and not VTT-323 because of longer chassis.
0:35 another rocket artillery with heavier rockets.
1:21 cool looking tracked artillery with different gun types. I want these in 15mm!
6:12 trucks with field artillery
9:51 I suppose its ZSU, but not sure what type
10:48 some sort of light Shilka
11:12 open top APC?
0:05 six wheeled BTR. I want them in 15mm!
2:36 tracked APC
3:14 old Ch'onma-ho tank (modified T-62)
5:03 modern North Korean made P'okpung-Ho MBT
If you interested in North Korean army organisation, here is great manual made by US Marines Intelligence: North Korea Country Handbook
